The granddaddy of all film score re-recordings, this 1962 vintage collection is also one of the best, presenting Korngold's most popular film work in well-chosen excerpts performed by The Warner Brothers Orchestra, conducted by Lionel Newman. Steve Hoffman has done an exceptionally fine job remixing the CD, and even the original insert booklet is re-created. Probably the best recorded version of Korngold's Adventures of Robin Hood music too. Track Listing.
Records LP. Erich Wolfgang Korngold, a brilliant opera composer, participated in creating at least 20 film scores, 7 of which are represented here, with an average of about 6 minutes of highlights from each. This stereo recording was made only about four years after the composer’s death, under his son’s supervision. It uses the original orchestrations, by Hugo Friedhofer, Ray Heindorf, and others as well as Korngold himself. Conductor Lionel Newman has an obvious feel for this music, even if some of the themes have a slightly brisker tempo than one might remember from the movies. And the 60-piece orchestra sparkles and shines.
Lionel Newman (January 4, 1916 – February 3, 1989) was an American conductor, pianist, and film and television composer. He won the Academy Award for Best Score of a Musical Picture for Hello Dolly! with Lennie Hayton in 1969. He is the brother of Alfred Newman and Emil Newman, uncle of composers Randy Newman, David Newman, Thomas Newman, Maria Newman, and grandfather of Joey Newman.
